Did you know that today is Eat Your Vegetables Day?
Summer is a great time to eat your veggies because there are so many great, fresh and YUMMY vegetables! In my last article, I asked for readers to submit recipes. I got many entries from simple ways to eat cucumber, squash and zuchini to more complex salads. They all look wonderful! Check them out here: Summer Veggie Reader Recipes
How Many Fruits & Vegetables Do You Need?
I feel like I’m saying this a lot. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables for cancer prevention and healthy survivorship. How much though? That’s what people are always asking me! In general, I recommend 4-5 cups per day of fruits and vegetables combined. Add it up…
1 cup at breakfast
1 cup at lunch
1 cup at dinner
1 cup throughout the day with snacks
fruit for dessert
There you go!
